Back in the Saddle Again!
It's been a crazy week and I'm glad to be Back in the Saddle Again! I've written a couple of posts about what I've been working on, leasing out my current home and buying another one. This stuff makes for drama that could give anyone high blood pressure! For now, let's just say I'm glad to be Back in the Saddle Again after the most drama filled lending experience in my 30 years of owning homes!
I'm prepared to write posts on the following:
Managing Expections for Lending to Self-Employed Contractors
How Best to be Prepared to Buy A Home as a Self-Employed Contractor
Using Real Estate to Supplement Retirement Income
The Benefits & Best Practices of Making a Home Energy Efficient
Steps to Downsize an HVAC System via Enery Efficiency
Buying a Home to Retrofit for Energy Efficient Features
And finally, Patience is a Virtue with Real Estate Purchases!
This has been the craziest 6 weeks I've ever endured in real estate, or in business for that matter. From buying my first home in 1984; relocating to 3 other States; selling at the height of the market; remodeling at the downfall; experienced the ride with the same company; and now building my real estate holdings. As a former banker, securities licensed insurance agent, and business owner, I get finance.
I get that Fannie Mae in their infinite wisdom is protecting their ASSets and that I'm just a lowely peon with an 800+ FICO score and plenty of income to buy another home - but oh I digress!
Stay tuned while I detail the hurdles fit for a triathlete during the last 10 days of buying another home!
Feels good to be Back in the Saddle Again!
